Yes, we have no bananas.
it's hard to beat a failm that has a first line of: "Had A Banana lately?" but that's what this 15 minute snippet of a longer 21 minute film starts out with, as Honduras struggles to get it's bananas out faster! The first little bit deals with the war, and how it robbed the world of our well deserved bananas. And the ports and ships were being used for wartime needs. But then, bizarrely, the film takes a turn somewhere and starts talking about the effort of speeding the time to get bananas to port faster. What this has to do with the War I don't know. We see the road being built every way possible, mostly by primitive ways. The film ends before we get a chance to see what happens, but I mean, it MUST be good news, as we can still get Bananas now, can't we?
